Nano-Technology Improves Stain Performance 200-600%

SaverSystems has joint ventured with several companies to develop a new long-lasting stain technology.  Our research efforts over the last year and a half have lead Project_buttonto a new development in the performance of exterior, semi-transparent wood finishes to protect your deck.

A newly developed nano-technology used in combination with our existing technology has been found to significantly increase the durability and weather resistance of our synthetic resin based deck stains. This new light stabilizing nano-technology actually works by blocking and absorbing the harmful UV rays from the sun that damage your wood.

Not only does this new technology help prevent wood from graying it also helps prevent water intrusion while resisting  fungal growth. The independent test results are in, and below are photo’s of the actual test boards which show how the new DEFY Extreme new technology stacks up against the best selling national brands.


Defy Extreme Wood Stain utilizes Nano Particles (Similar to Sunscreen) and High Grade Synthetic Resins. When combined they will reflect the sun and provide UV protection that has never been seen in a Tinted Wood Finish. This is a First in the Industry

Defy Extreme Wood Stain can be used on interior or exterior smooth hardwood surfaces including: wood siding, decks, outdoor wood furniture, and other hardwood surfaces.

Defy Extreme - Wood Stain:

  • Utilizing Nano-Particles and Synthetic Resins. Nano Light-Stabilizers block the sun's harmful UV rays preventing graying
  • Nano particles help prevent mold and algae
  • Semi-Transparent wood finish adds color and protection to your wood
  • Stains and seals your wood from water penetration
  • Water-Based with easy soap and water cleanup
  • VOC Compliant and Eco-Friendly formula
  • Leading protection that will outperform all tinted transparent wood stains

Location: Lawrenceville, Ga Stain: Defy Natural Pine Prep: None Wood/Age: Pressure Treated Pine # of Coats: 2 Excellent ? product - 1 Gallon covered entire 12×14 deck 2× ? Natural Pine is Golden and Rich, doesn't look like paint on wood. Looks like Harwood floors with a Semi -Matte appearance. We hand painted our platform Brush/Roller and it was quick and easy. If you hand paint don't skip around. Paint one plank at a time end to end. Also Dry time was quick - no smells- water like consistentcy goes far. Clean- up with Soap/Water. Wish I could post the pictures! Thank you

    We applied the defy extreme clear on our brand new cedar deck fence this morning and hours later we are still seeing a white coat on the wood. It was absorbing well and We thought we were applying thinly enough. Will this disappear or are we doing something wrong? How can we get our wood back to normal?

    The Defy extreme stain is a penetrating stain then can be cleaned and re coated, If stripping is needed it can be done fairly easily as it does not film on top of the wood like an acrylic deck stain.

    Is the Extreme Nano product considered a penetrating stain like your traditional epoxy fortified deck stain says it is? If the Extreme is used on a deck in two years when its time to clean again can you simply add a top coat and if so will it penetrate and absorb into the wood like a traditional oil based stain or will I have to strip it off every two years before applying a top coat? The reason I ask is that the Extreme is advertised as a stain and "Sealer" which to me implies that it may sit on top of the wood versus penetrating it which to me would seem that it could prevent future coats from being able to penetrate it. If and when stripping is required how difficult will it be to remove it as compared to traditional oil based stains or for that matter your traditional "Epoxy Fortified Product" that does not have the nano technology? Just spent four weeks stripping off 9 layers of acrylic deck stain and I never want to go through the cost of the special chemicals required to cut it nor the time and aggravation every again. In other words, when the product starts to fail is it going to create a lot more cost and effort to maintain it?

    1. Behr is not easy to remove since it does apply like a paint. I would get a high quality wood stripper then if needed sand the rest of.
    2. For cedar wood I would suggest the Defy Hardwood/Cedar stains as it penetrates better.
    3. Typically no you do not need to strip when recoating.
    4. Every couple of years in Michigan is normal.
    5. Our store is in Rochester Hills, Mi if you would like to come in for some advice.

    I have a ceder deck in Michigan that we applied a water base Behr stain to and it all flaked off in less than a year, we followed all the directions and talked to Behr numerous times to make sure we did it right. It was a semi transparent stain but went on like paint and did not absorb in to the wood. I know I need to strip it but would like to know :
    1. What is the best way to remove it ?
    2. If the Defy Extreme will do the same ?
    3. Do you have to strip it every year or two to recoat it ?
    4. How long will the product last before it needs to be redone ?
    5. And any other advice you can give I do not want to go through this again.
    Thank you,

    I would do a test spot to see if the second coat absorbs and dries properly into the wood. You do not want the second coat to film on top and become shiny.

    Just applied Extreme clear to brand new cyress used in cladding pt deck posts. I applied 1st coat and forget. It wasnt until next day I realized I did not return within the 20 minute window to apply 2nd coat. How and when would it be safe to apply a 2nd coat? Do I need to strip it and then apply two coats. I hope not.

    Best to strip off the Cabot with the Defy Stain Stripper and Defy Wood Brightener:

    For the stain I would suggest the Defy Extreme:

    It is not prone to turning black like other known wood stains.

    Hi We have a summer home in NH with 2 year old pressure treated wood decks. We have been using Jomax and cabets Australian sealer on them every year but they get blace every winter and we have to do them over every spring. We can not get to the deck to clean off the leaves so they cover the decks along with snow all winter. Do you have anything that will last for 3-5 years. We like the natural wood to show. W see you have several cleaners, strippers, brightners, epoxys and ect. What would you recamend we do with the decks so they stay narural for a while. We do not mind the work or $.
    Thanks Adrian
